I was having a similar problem.  I stopped getting that error when I tried 
postgres 7.1beta6 instead.  

Supposedly if you put the right patches on and put the special fixed header 
files where they belong, sing the secret mantra and shake the holy rattle, 
you can make it work with 7.0.3.

I never could make it work though :)  The patch didn't work right, gave me an 
error (even thought I'm sure it was a unix nl-delimited file).

I'm using 1.1.8 cygwin, BTW.

Here are the references I found:
